Year 2 Skipton Castle

On Monday 18th September, Year 2 set off on an exciting adventure to Skipton Castle.  Skipton Castle is over 900 years old and is one of the most complete and preserved medieval castles in England.

We were very fortunate to have a fantastic tour guide who helped us to explore every corner of the impressive castle. He helped us to understand all the different rooms of a castle and how they were used. We listened to fascinating stories about life in the castle and its owners Lord and Lady Clifford.

Our tour guide’s stories allowed us to use our imaginations to think about, and re-enact, what life was like when Skipton Castle was first built.  Thanks to our thorough training (and imaginations) Year 2 are now fully equipped Lords and Ladies, stonemasons, chefs, archers and servants.
